  • In the Barrios: Latinos and the Underclass Debate: Latinos and the Underclass Debate By Joan Moore, The image of the underclass, framed by persistent poverty, long term joblessness, school dropout, teenage pregnancy, and drug use, has become synonymous with urban poverty But does this image tell us enough about how the diverse minorities among the urban poor actually experience and cope with poverty No, say the contributors to In the Barrios Their portraits of eightThe image of the underclass, framed by persistent poverty, long term joblessness, school dropout, teenage pregnancy, and drug use, has become synonymous with urban poverty But does this image tell us enough about how the diverse minorities among the urban poor actually experience and cope with poverty No, say the contributors to In the Barrios Their portraits of eight Latino communities in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, Chicago, Albuquerque, Laredo, and Tucson reveal a far complex reality.In the Barrios responds directly to current debates on the origins of the underclass and depicts the cultural, demographic, and historical forces that have shaped poor Latino communities These neighborhoods share many hardships, yet they manifest no typical form of poverty Instead, each group adapts its own cultural and social resources to the difficult economic circumstances of American urban life The editors point to continued immigration as an issue of overriding importance in understanding urban Latino poverty Newcomers to concentrated Latino areas build a local economy that provides affordable amenities and promotes ethnic institutional development In many of these neighborhoods, a network of emotional as well as economic support extends across families and borders.The first major assessment of inner city Latino communities in the United States, In the Barrios will change the way we approach the current debate on urban poverty, immigration, and the underclass.
